Before you buy them, check whether you can move the lever drag easily, whether you don't lose free spool or whether the turning the handle is smooth, when you increase the drag to the point you want. If you are satisfied with those things, the reel should be an excellent choice.

accurate 2 speed

Killsong,
I don't have access to the reels in person, just online. i was hoping that you or another pro would have had the chance to give them the once over.

I have two 870 two speed and could tell you they are well worth the money. It doesn't matter where you position the lever drag there is no resistance when you reel. Very smooth reel. As for using it for tuna I cannot comment on that but george down at accurate says it more than capable of handling that job. I use mine for cod. Hope this helps.

If you say you use the reel for cod, you probably don't use heavy drag. Can you test the reel with max drag and see how it works ?

With the line capacity of 330 yards of 30 lbs mono, which is equivalent to 330 yard of 80 lbs braided line with some room for topshot, and 25 max drag, the reel is capable to handle tuna.

However, if the new 665 two speed can give more max drag than 870, I prefer the new 665N two speed. 20 lbs max drag at strike and 25 lbs drag at strike is a big difference.

I spooled my 870's with 550 yards of 80lbs power pro. If i went with 65lbs power pro I could of fit 624 yards. If you want a topshot just deducted a few yards. Either way thats alot of line.

Kil,

Good to see you last night!

I spoke to Accurate 2 weeks ago and they mentioned the specs on the 665 2-speed to me.
I'm pretty sure the 665 is going to be most similar to the "HM" or "H" model not the 'N". The weight is supposed to be around 28 oz and I'm positive it generates more than 30lbs of drag. Also more importantly the gear ratios are a little lower than the 870 2-speed.

Yes, it was fun yesterday. I almost gave up going to the bash as it took one hour to drive 5 miles. Roll But I am glad I made it.

You are right about 665 two speed.
There are only two models available : regular 665 2-speed and 665W 2-speed. while 870's gear ratio is 6:1 and 3:1, 665's is 5:1 and 2:1.

While the line capacity of 870C is 325 yards of 65 lbs braided line with 100 yards of 40 lbs mono topshot, 665's is 400 yards of 65 lbs braided line with 100 yard of 50 lbs mono topshot.

The 665 seems to be very popular for tuna jigging. I have a 665HC and it looks like it would hold 300 yards of 80lb with the 100 meters of PE8 on top.

I posted on the other site that this calculation is not reliable. Way Off.

I stand corrected. i used that to determine line capacity. Guess the tackle shop that rigged my reels overcharged me.
